    Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for a homophobic slur that commissioner David Stern called "offensive and inexcusable."After receiving a technical foul during Tuesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs, Bryant stormed to the bench, hit his seat before sitting down, threw a towel and then yelled "Bennie!" toward referee Bernie Adams. Bryant then leaned back and muttered a gay slur.The episode was caught on camera on TNT's national telecast, prompting announcer Steve Kerr to say: "You might wanna take the cameras off of him right now, for the children watching from home."

    wow this is bullcrap i hate this politically correct bullcrap. Ive heard Gays refer to themselves as Fags im sure you go up to a typical gay person and ask them if they really care if he said that word in frustration 90% wouldnt care its the 10% that want to make a big deal about basically anything they can to advance their agenda.

    Well since both are black men maybe Bryant should have just called him a "N*****" (i don't even like typing that word) and he would've avoided all of this.

    Pretty happy he got fined here. I mean as a professional athlete you always need to be careful of what you say especially if you think the cameras are going to be on you. hope he learned his lesson
